In this article we’re going to briefly discuss an offshoot of the Masonic service, one for women called the Eastern Star Funeral Service.
The Eastern Star organization is an offshoot of the Masons for women. The reason for this is that a woman can’t become a Mason. The reasons why, at least for this article, are unimportant. However, there is an organization for women who want to be a part of the Masonic community. That organization is the Eastern Star. The only requirement for becoming a member of the Eastern Star is that the woman has to be the descendent of a Mason. Yes, there is a catch. Your father or grandfather or husband or somebody in your family has to be a Mason himself. If this one condition is met and you then become a member of the Eastern Star you are then entitled to an Eastern Star memorial service.
So how does one qualify for an Eastern Star funeral service? Well, when a member of the Eastern Star in good standing, dies, they are entitled to this service. Good standing means that their dues are paid up in full and have no Masonic charges filed against them.
When an Eastern Star member dies the chapter to which they belong sends a floral arrangement to the funeral home. This arrangement is in the shape of a five pointed star and with the mystical colors of the order.
Before the actual service takes place however, the members of the chapter meet at their chapter building for what they call a draping ceremony. At this ceremony their alter is draped in black and a special opening of the chapter is then performed. This is, in many cases, done just once during the year to commemorate all the members who have died that year. After the draping at the chapter the members then proceed to the funeral home.
At the home there is a special Eastern Star service. It is very similar to the Masonic service in some respects but very different in others. For one thing, where the Masonic service is memorized, the Eastern Star service is read from what is called a book of ritual. This book contains the entire Eastern Star funeral service and must be read word for word.
In a Masonic service one person does the reading, but in an Eastern Star service there are many readers. The readings are done by various members of the fraternity who occupy specific stations as officers. Each officer reads a part assigned to their station. Each individual part is rather short but putting them all together the actual service can run 15 to 20 minutes.
After the service is over the members of the chapter pay their final respects to the deceased and process out of the funeral home room. Afterwards they will meet with the family and friends of the deceased, many who are probably Eastern Star members themselves of other chapters.
The Eastern Star funeral service is one of the most beautiful services of any kind that a person could attend. It is something of which the order of Eastern Star can and should be very proud of.
Women love to be dominated by a man in bed. One technique you can use to excite your partner beyond her wildest dreams is manhandling. By giving her a little pain by physical stimulation, you will be able to maximize her psychological stimulation by making use of manhandling. One thing you can do is when your girl is standing by a door is to slam her back into it. The force of the blow will be distributed through her back, meaning that she won’t feel much pain. As the door will slam shut and make a loud notice, it will excite her even further due to the dominant element.
Another great way is to rip her clothes off. If she wears old panties you can put your hand into it and twist it around to rip it with more ease. Then hold her down with one hand as you rip her panties of with the other. Make sure you’ll pull hard and sidewards so that the force of the rip will go into her hip, instead of any sensitive area. Like slamming her back into a door, this is very dominant.
Another awesome way to convey more dominance is by pulling her hair. In order to use this you need to grab her hair as closest to the roots as possible and pull her head in whatever direction you want. When performed well, women will love this sensation. This is great when you are standing behind her sucking her neck. You can also do this to make her look you in the eyes when having sex which will add more emotion to your lovemaking as well.
Finally, a good way to manhandle your girl is by spanking her. If you two start to play wrestle you can put her over your knee, bring her pants down and spank her hard. As this part of the body has a lot of muscles and fat it’s able to take quite a punishment before it hurts to much. You can spank her any time her ass is exposed.
These are just a couple of examples. Use your creativity and your woman will quickly love how dominant you’ve become.
The price of amber is determined by the different life forms which are found in the stone. Intact insects, plants, flowers etc will increase the value of amber and these stones will be highly priced. Typically, an amber necklace with say, a trapped dragonfly, will have a high price and will enjoy a heavy demand in the market.
The prices of these gems can vary depending upon the clarity, color, polish and size of the piece. The prices mentioned in this article are in general for gems of fairly good color and good clarity. Opaque pieces of amber can usually be bought quite cheap – for as much as $0.10 to $1 for a carat or less. For pieces around an inch in size and with insect inclusions, the prices can range from $50 to $60. An average stone of a good size and with inclusions would cost around $195.
Good wholesale quality beads can also be purchased for as low as $15. Shapeless and uneven pieces without any fossil inclusions ranging from 1 to 1.5 inches in size and weighing around 10 to 12 carats would cost anywhere between $30 to $40. Polished beads without any inclusions of about 1 centimeter usually cost from $1 to $2 per carat.
Many a times, this gem is heated to give it an old or aged look. These pieces usually cost less compared to a similar piece having the original color.
Amber pieces with unusual flora and fauna are a collector’s item. Fossils in this gem always increase its value and beauty. A pendant with inclusions is guaranteed to get a good price in the market. A carved ring is also very highly priced in the market.
A significant difference in the price of the amber is made depending on the period from which the amber originates from. The older the gemstone, the higher is its price. However, it is not easy to identify the age of the stone. Most gemological laboratories also do not often certify amber gemstones. The process of finding out the age of the amber stone involves identifying the inclusions present in the stone and estimating the period in which it existed.
There is an interesting piece of news about a piece of Dominican amber with inclusions. Recently, such a piece with a large lizard trapped inside it was sold for $ 75000. This figure cannot really give us a hint of how high a price this gemstone can fetch.
In fact, the amount of history associated with amber jewelry would only serve to increase its market value. Similarly, antique jewelry or a pendant with insect is very highly valued in the market.
There are frequent attempts made in the market to sell amber ‘simulants’ as genuine amber. Simulants of this gem include ambroid, copal resin, kauri gum, dammar, celluloid and plastic. These simulants would normally cost a fraction of what a real stone costs.
Thus, we can see that the price of this gemstone mostly depends upon factors such as age, inclusions, quality and size.
Medicine is considered as one of the most important necessity to all of us. It is derived from the Latin words ars medicina meaning “the art of healing”. It is a branch of the health sciences and is the sector of public life concerned with maintaining or restoring human health through the study, diagnosis, treatment and possible prevention of disease, injury and other damage to a body or mind.
It is both an area of knowledge, a science of body system and their diseases and treatment. This branch of science encompasses treatment by drugs, diet, exercise and other nonsurgical means. It is also used to maintain our health. An agent such as drug is used to treat disease or injury. There are different types of medicine, we have herbal medicine, which came from different kinds of plants, medicines treat in hospital and etc. Herbal medicine, also called botanical medicine or phytomedicine, refers to use of any plant’s seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. Long practiced outside of conventional medicine, herbalism is becoming more mainstreams as up-to-date analysis and research show their value in the treatment and prevention of disease. Some of us believe in herbal medicines, for it is pure came from plants and no other ingredients. Herbal medicine also uses for cough, fever, toothache and some other diseases that might catch from our environment. Herbalists treat many conditions such as asthma, eczema, premenstrual syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, migraine, menopausal symptoms, chronic fatigue, and an irritable bowel syndrome among others. Plants had been used for medicinal purposes long before recorded history. For most herbs, the specific ingredient that causes a therapeutic effect is not known. Whole herbs contain many ingredients and it is likely that they work together to produce the desired medicinal effect
Some medicines may cause problems if you take them with other medicines. This is why it is important to tell your doctor and pharmacist about all the medicines you are taking. And some medicines can cause problems, even if you take them correctly. Call your doctor or pharmacist if you think your medicine is making you feel worse. We take medicine to make us feel better when we are sick.
Imagine a sex life where regardless of how long it went for, or how hard you wanted to, you never reached orgasm.
It’d be pretty frustrating, right?
Sadly, that’s what about 70% of women go through every single day.
Many men are waking up to the fact that their partner isn’t getting the sexual satisfaction she craves, and to their credit, are seeking out a solution to the problem. However, many of you reading this article are probably still unsure of how to give a girl multiple, mind-blowing orgasms that she know she desperately needs.
That’s where I come in. In this article, I’m going to show you exactly how you can make your girl come quickly, easily, and effortlessly, using a simple, idiot-proof three-step formula.
Step 1: Build Sexual Tension
With all that goes on in our lives these days, it’s easy for us to lose touch with our inherent sexuality. For guys, this usually isn’t a big problem – we’re so highly sexually charged to begin with, that it doesn’t exactly take a lot for it to awaken.
Women, on the other hand, are a whole different story.
As opposed to men, who are generally more sexually charged the longer it’s been since they’ve had sex, women work the opposite way. That is to say, they are at their horniest when they are having regular orgasms.
In order to make a woman orgasm quickly and effortlessly, we have to re-awaken her sexuality. We do this first mentally, then physically. The mental component is called sexual tension.
Building sexual tension, whilst easy when you know how, is a whole subject in and of itself. For the purposes of this article, just understand that it involves getting a girl’s mind to be receptive to any sexual advances you make. Ways to do this may include light touching, a certain look, saying certain things, flirting, and much more.
Once you have built a decent amount of sexual tension, you can move on to the next step.
Step 2: Foreplay
Being able to perform powerful, arousing foreplay is one of the best skills a man can have in the bedroom.
If sexual tension is the key to awakening a woman’s mental sexuality, foreplay is the key to re-aquainting her body with her sexual side. Again, there really isn’t enough room in this article to be able to reveal the secrets to amazing foreplay, but essentially it revolves around “firing up” her nerves and putting her body in a highly sexually charged state.
Step 3: Direct Sexual Stimulation
If you have built sexual tension correctly, and have given your girl amazing foreplay, she’s 90% of the way to having amazing, powerful orgasms already.
Having said that, obviously the actual physical stimulation is still extremely vital in making her come.
Again, unfortunately, there just isn’t room in this article to give a thorough and in-depth explanation of how to use the clitoris, G-spot, and vaginal nerve endings in order to satisfy a woman’s sexual cravings. We don’t have the space to get into a discussion of primary and secondary stimulation, or the multitude of “hot spots” that are part of the female body, or how to use mental stimulation in tandem with physical stimulation in order to give her powerful, mind-blowing orgasms.
What you have just read is the basic skeletal outline of everything you need to know in order to make a girl come quickly and effortlessly. If you apply this roadmap, there is no doubt in my mind that your girl will have the most powerful orgasms of her life.
Neuro-typical children who grow up naturally with no impediments to their learning and intellectual abilities, are social and can communicate their demands to others. But children with autism spectrum disorder are usually withdrawn in their own world and often display behaviors that are not acceptable to others. They have trouble to effectively communicate with others, especially in a social situation. In fact, it’s often a very common problem for children to not communicate at all. In such situations, fun learning apps for children with autism like “Make Sentences” and “Just Match” can be of immense help.
Emerging practice and research have revealed that use of tech-based support can prove effective to target the major challenges for people with autism. These include socialization, motivation, and communication. These in turn have a significant effect on the way a child with autism spectrum disorder participates in school, home and community environments.
In recent times, there have been thousands of apps that ride on the popularity of mobile technology. These apps help people with cognitive challenges to increase their sphere of communication abilities and reach more number of people. Fun Learning apps for children with autism like “Make Sentences” and “Just Match” are unique tools that help special needs children communicate and learn. These apps also help children with autism live more independently.
While there have been several apps in recent times that are meant for individuals with autism, none of them have been able to match the popularity of the “Make Sentences” and “Just Match” apps. These two apps help children with autism to improve their communication and also increase their language abilities through innovative mobile communication gadgets like the iPad, tabs and smartphones.
The “Make Sentences” and “Just Match” fun learning apps for children with autism reduces the barriers of functional communication that for people with autism spectrum disorder having language delays. At the same time, these two apps strengthen the core vocabulary of the child using common meaningful items from the environment.
Augmentative and communication apps enhance the learning of academic skills by reinforcing the basic language through a robust and dynamic library of life-like graphics. This has made the “Make Sentences” app one of the best in the industry to build vocabulary skills. The two highly intuitive and child-friendly apps have in-built customizable features that have been particularly designed for special needs children. Both these apps have won accolades from special
We were wondering if the etymology dates back to one Pepe le Pew’s debut on the silver screen. Perhaps the spray of a real skunk motivated the first exclamation of “P U, ” but a trip to any dictionary will confirm that this expression of displeasure long predated animated cartoons. Somewhat to our surprise, P. U is not an abbreviation and not an acronym.
In Latin, the word puteo means “to stink, be redolent, or smell bad. ” The Indo-European word pu refers to rot or decay. and many other languages cotain words referring to bad smells that start with the letters pu. The English interjection phew refers to “a vocal gesture expressing impatience, disgust, discomfort, or weariness” according to the Oxford English Dictionary, and variants abound (pew, pho, pheut, phoo, phugh, peugh and fogh, dating back as far as they early seventeenth century).
What all these variations have in common, according to Jesse Sheidlower, the North American editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, whose “Word of the Day” column is a highlight of the OED’s Web site, is that all represent “something like the whistling sound you get by blowing a puff of air out of closed lips.” Sheidlower’s theory, as good as any we can come up with, is that “P. U” is an emphatic form of saying “pew”.
Other words can be given emphasis in a similar way keeprist! for “Christ, ” or bee-yoo-ti-ful for “beautiful, ” are two examples. The differences with P. U is that it has the advantage of sounding like two named English letters, which is why it’s spelled out that way, instead of something like peeyew.
No on knows for sure when the disyllabic pronunciation of P. U has been around. Sheidlower says the spelling “certainly existed by the 1950s, of not earlier, ” and most agree that the United States can claim ownership of the short, if not sweet, expression. Check out our Facts site
Flags and banners must be hung correctly in order to make them aesthetically pleasing. There are a number of different ways to do this depending on where you want to hang them, how large they are, and what type of material they are made out of. You should carefully think about the best ways to do this depending on your unique situation. The following are a few ideas, and you will need to decide which one best fits what you are trying to do. While hanging the flags and banners, make sure that you use all necessary safety measures since you may be working in rather high places.
Hanging Flags On Walls
Besides the flagpole, the wall is probably the most popular place to hang a flag. Many people will do this on the outside of their home to show support for a sports team or a college. If you are doing this, you want to simply hang the fabric up with screws. You could use nails as well, but these will be much harder to take out if you decide to move and you want to take your flag with you to your new home. Put a single screw in each corner, leaving the middle free so that wind can move through without ripping the fabric.
Hanging Banners Inside
Many hunting lodges and summer cabins will have banners hung inside of them that add to the atmosphere of the building. Again, this is often done to support colleges or teams, and people typically use small pennants in place of huge banners. You should just use thumb tacks for this job, putting two at the back and one at the front. This will not damage your walls in case you want to take the banners down at some point and leave the wall blank.
Hanging Flags From The Masts Of Sailboats
The masts of sailboats are often used in the same way that flagpoles are. The best way to do this is to set up a pulley system with a rope that stretches to the top of the mast. You can then just run the flag up when you go sailing and take it down when you come into port. You will not have to worry about climbing the mast each time, something that can be dangerous on a rocking boat.
Hanging Banners In Windows
People will often hang banners in their windows; these could be large enough to cover the whole window, acting as a curtain, or small enough to just provide some decoration for both the inside and the outside. It is wise to use a ladder instead of leaning out the window since a ladder is safer.
Increased competition has made it imperative for students to obtain a good quality education. The educational process has evolved and developed over a long period of time. New and contemporary teaching methods are being designed to provide good quality education to students. There are numerous teaching strategies, which are generally followed in the US. These include the lecture method, case method, discussion method, active learning, cooperative learning, integrating technology and distance learning.
The lecture case method is the most commonly used method in classrooms all around the world. The lecture approach provides a means to convey a large amount of information to a number of students at the same time. It maximizes the lecturer’s control and is generally non-threatening to students. The case method is an instructional strategy that engages students in lively debates about issues and problems inherent in practical relevance. In the discussion method, the instructor starts the tutorial with a whole group discussion to refresh students’ memories about the assigned reading. Learning is enhanced when students become actively involved in the learning process, as such active learning proves to be an appropriate method for teaching. Various studies have shown that learning is enhanced when students become actively involved in the learning process.
Cooperative learning is an organized academic approach that encourages small groups of students to work together for the execution of a common goal. Computer literacy today forms a significant part of a student’s education. Integrating technology into a syllabus when appropriate has proved to be important for improving and developing the learning experience of the faculty and students. Distance learning refers to any form of teaching and learning in which the teacher and student are not in the same place at the same time. Improved information technology has played an important role in facilitating the process of distance learning.
The concept of teaching has undergone a vast sea of change. Over the years, new and improved methods have been introduced to impart good quality education to students.
Developing children, typically, tend to naturally desire social interaction with others. They try to strike up a conversation and communicate naturally. But children with autism spectrum disorder are typically withdrawn and can’t participate in a natural conversation. They may display behaviors and face trouble in communicating effectively in a social situation. It’s quite common for a child having autism spectrum disorder to not use any functional speech at all.
But many latest practices and research have revealed that technology-based gadgets are more effective to target the key challenges of children with autism spectrum disorder. These include socialization, motivation, and communication. All these challenges have a direct impact on the way autistic children interact with others, and participate in school, home, and community environments.
There are thousands of mobile technology apps like “What’s the Expression” and “Make Sentences” that offer solutions to enable autistic children with cognitive challenges to open up their communication abilities and reach out. There are many autism learning apps, and “What’s the Expression” and “Make Sentences” are of course two of the most popular.
The special needs education apps like “What’s the Expression” and “Make Sentences” provide unique tools that help autistic children to learn functions more independently and facilitate communication.
Children with autism and other disabilities often use expanding language for improving their communication and increase the language capacity. Innovative autism learning apps like “What’s the Expression” and “Make Sentences” help in strengthening the language capacity via innovative mobile communication devices that include tabs, iPads and smart phones.
These two apps, according to experts, lessen the barrier of functional communication among autistic kids. They also help to reduce language delays and strengthen the vocabulary of the autistic child, using meaningful day-to-day items from their own environment.
Augmentative communication apps can enhance learning of all several key academic skills of autistic kids. The “What’s the Expression” and “Make Sentences” autism learning apps can reinforce the basic language skills via an in-built robust library of life-like graphics. Both these autism apps are interactive and can be fully customized for each child’s needs. Experts say that these two are the best autism learning apps of their kind in the market.
Autism apps have changed the education landscape for special needs children. Many schools have already integrated these devices in their system. But awareness in this regard is still lacking. Developers of the “What’s the Expression” and “Make Sentences” autism learning apps also provide training for using these apps.
